The #1 Kindle Gay Fiction Best Seller, Body of Water, is the first novel in the Orcadian Trilogy, and 1 of 10 books long-listed for the Polari First Book Prize for a first book which explores the LGBT experience:

“Fear the water.”

Leven has never forgotten his mother’s terrible warning. So how can he explain his strange attraction to water, his powerful sensitivity to it, his extraordinary ability to swim as though possessed?

Water is Leven’s natural element.

And it’s water that takes the one he loves and destroys everything he’s ever called his own.

Set on the Orkney Islands in the mysterious realm of Selkie mythology, Leven’s story of lost identity, lost love, and the search for redemption leads him from London to a terrifying meeting with the dark and volatile man who will change his heart forever.

Something in the water is coming for Leven.

But can a man born of chaos ever calm the storm?
